Product Description
Beowulf Oral Tradition PowerPoint is wonderful resource and challenge for students. The PowerPoint begins by teaching students about literary devices used in the traditional storytelling of the epic. Next, the facilitator begins a guided reading and comparison between the Francis B. Gummere (Harvard Classics) & the Seamus Heaney translations of Beowulf. While reading, students circle at least 5 examples of alliteration, underline assonance, and highlight at least 2 examples of kennings within each passage. Students then, with the help of the teacher, highlight and discuss differences in word choice (diction) and connotations that they find within the text. As a final assessment for each activity students are required to answer the following questions in a mini essay:
? Which of the authors better captures the oral tradition by use of more alliteration, assonance kennings, etc.?
? What are some examples of different words used (diction) to communicate the same idea? Which author uses words more effectively in your opinion? Why?

This PowerPoint is composed of:
1) Slides with definitions of literary devices
2) 5 Close Reading Comparison Activities including answer keys,
and a final test assessment.
3) 1 Anticipation Guide
4) 1 Boast Creative Writing Assignment

Please email me at Junco22@yahoo.com for a free 17 page Word packet full of handouts and answer keys from the PowerPoint. Additionally, I have the PowerPoint saved in several different formats (Power Point Presentation, Power Point 97-2003 presentation, etc). I would be more than happy to send you the material in a different format upon request.
